Tsubaki and Black☆Star set off on their most difficult mission yet: a battle with the Uncanny Sword Masamune. But this fight holds personal significance for Tsubaki- their target is her older brother. Jealous of her inherited talents, Masamune is holding nothing back. Usually docile and complacent, Tsubaki must find the strength to overtake the Uncanny Sword before she too is sucked into the darkness.

Rip off
the pitch-
black SOUL


  • Original artwork of a barefoot Maka Albarn holding a receiver cut off from its phone, with the caption "No Surprises."
  • Table of contents featuring Maka tugging on Soul's lips and Soul playing with her pigtails(Atsushi Ōkubo would make similar artwork with Maka in similar poses. For example, there is artwork with Maka standing before Yoshino Takigawa, from the Square Enix manga and anime Zetsuen no Tempest: The Civilization Blaster, written by Arihide Sano and Kyou Shirodaira and illustrated by Ren Saizaki. In this artwork, Yoshino stands behind Maka and tugs at his own lips.)
